Announcing SBHX Contest #1
Want to show off one of your projects, and maybe even win a prize in the process? Get your cameras ready, and prepare to blow us away with your hardware project’s Epicness and get it posted front-and-center on our new blog!
What kind of project may I enter with?
For this contest, your project does not have to include a significant hardware component. It should either be original, or a significant addition you made to an existing project that you have permission to post for the world to see.
Who is eligible?
Anyone who has been to SB Hackerspace. Ever. True story.
How do I enter?
Send an email, with a brief description of the project and attached photo, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
By when must I enter?
Friday February 15, 2013 @ 11:59pm Pacific time. The judging will occur at SB Hackerspace (map, video) the following day at our Saturday meeting.
How will the winner be determined?
The SB Hackerspace Board of Directors and the community will each nominate a winner. If these two groups nominate the same entry, then said entry is the winner. If the Board and community vote for two different entries, there will be a second vote where only individuals can vote (no Board). Whoever ends up with the most votes shall reign victorious.
What are the criteria? What makes a project good?
There is but one criterion — Epicness — to be subjectively determined by all judging parties.
Is there a prize?
Yes! The winner will receive a $25 gift certificate for Home Depot.
Between now and the next contest, we’ll be looking for sponsors to partner with to offer prizes, providing exposure for the sponsor, greater recognition of the hackerspace, and a cool gift for the winner! Everybody wins. (If you’d like to sponsor an SB Hackerspace contest, contact us.)
